Well, actually, contrary to what I've said earlier, there is cblas
available in the new blas package (in hardy, which is why I have not
seen it; I don't use debian anymore for non server machines). So one
solution could be to build numpy against blas/lapack/cblas packages,
making sure the CBLAS is found, and then, people could install atlas to
change the runtime libraries.
Now, I am not sure whether numpy can currently build against the
standard CBLAS. I know it can build against ATLAS (and Intel MKL) CBLAS,
but I don't know for others,
